Red Cross Bukidnon to offer transpo for volunteer blood donors
In an effort to encourage more volunteer blood donors, the Philippine Red Cross (PRC) – Bukidnon Chapter is now offering transport services and can even conduct mobile blood donation activities at the comfort of blood donors’ homes.
Bukidnon Red Cross’ offer comes at the heels of the continuous implementation of the Executive Order prohibiting social gatherings. This is a challenge to Red Cross Bukidnon especially since they’re tasked to provide sufficient and quality blood units throughout the province.
“To address this problem, we have been conducting a weekly walk-in blood donation activity at our office every Wednesday, Thursday and Friday 9am-4pm, but this won’t suffice if we will rely entirely on it,” a post by the Bukidnon Red Cross Chapter said.
In order to address these challenges, Bukidnon Red Cross will be providing transport services for interested volunteer blood donors (starting May 21, 2020). They may also conduct mobile blood donation activity at the comfort of blood donors’ homes through their ambulance.
Although this is for residents within Malaybalay City, Casisang, Kalasungay, and San Jose, other interested donors who are outside the said barangays can also book a schedule with Bukidnon Red Cross on their preferred date and time, provided there will be at least 5 donors.
